Genetic variants associated with inherited cardiovascular disorders among 13,131 asymptomatic older adults of European descent
P Lacaze et al, NPJ Genomic Medicine, June 16, 2021

We performed targeted sequencing of 25 genes used routinely in clinical genetic testing for inherited cardiovascular disorders in a population of 13,131 asymptomatic older individuals (mean age 75 years) enrolled in the ASPREE trial. In total, 119 participants had pathogenic/deleterious variants in one of 25 genes analyzed (carrier rate of 1 in 110 or 0.9%)

Summer Camp, A Place Where A Kid Can Just Be A Kid… Even If He Or She Has Sickle Cell Disease
CDC, June 2021

Summer camp can positively affect any child’s mental and physical health, but perhaps even more so if the child lives with a chronic medical condition such as sickle cell disease (SCD). For these children, the summer camp experience can provide support and education and reduce the social isolation so often experienced by those with a challenging health condition.

Towards precision medicine in heart failure
CS Weldy et al, Nat Rev Cardiol, June 9, 2021

We summarize the biology of heart failure (HF), emphasizing the causal relationships between genetic contributors and traditional structure-based remodelling outcomes, and highlight the mechanisms of action of traditional and novel therapeutics. We discuss the latest advances in our understanding of both the Mendelian genetics of cardiomyopathy and the complex genetics of the clinical syndrome presenting as HF.
